I have had the pleasure to work with AER International at my previous company and here. They have a well-earned reputation in Russia as one of the few international agencies that really ‘gets’ Russia and how to recruit successfully here. I find their service levels outstanding. Not only do they send high quality candidates for our positions, they also give excellent advice on the market and really excellent and in-depth feedback. I regard AER International as the best foreign agency I have used.
Leading emerging markets gold producerHR Manager
We started working with AER International in 2012, when we were experiencing difficulties in hiring a suitable candidate for a business critical post. AER were able to give us a selection of three very good candidates within no more than 2 weeks, and we hired one of them. Since then we have used AER for all of our ex-patriate hiring needs and they have delivered to the same standard every time. Not only do they identify the right people, they manage the process very well.
We have never failed to hire our preferred candidate while working with AER. None of their candidates has been terminated or left early either. I recommend AER without any hesitation whatsoever, they are the best recruitment firm I have dealt with.

I have worked with AER International for a number of years and they have always shown a high level of professionalism and dedication. Not only have they found myself a position in the past, but they have also successfully recruited for me, as a hiring manager on a number of occasions. What I appreciate most about AER is their ability to understand site specific requirements and to put forward suitable candidates.
I would not hesitate in recommending AER International to future clients, as they have a very good ability to find the best possible candidates in the market.

I have been working with AER International on various projects when it comes to recruitment of expatriate positions in the Mining industry. One of the reasons why I prefer to work with AER, compared to many other agencies, is that communication is always direct and responsive. Questions are being replied to within a very short timeframe and the candidates brought forward were the ‘right’ ones.
I would highly recommend AER International and would without hesitation use them time and time again in future endeavours, if and when vacancies arise.
Leading mid-tier gold producerHR Director
AER International have been the most successful ex-pat recruiter for our Russian operations by a distance. They placed about 25% of the entire ex-pat team since 2011 and most are still on-site and contributing to our success. If we need the support of a recruiter, I go straight to Chris and his team. I know that we will get top quality candidates, well prepared and motivated. They are extremely thorough and professional in everything they do, and really understand the business. Would recommend them unreservedly.

We have been working with AER International since 2013, firstly on business critical roles and as the project progressed, we have chosen AER International as our preferred recruitment partner for all the expatriate hires in Guinea and UAE.
Not only were AER’s team successful in identifying the right candidates within a very short span of time, they also have been very proactive, managing the offer process smoothly getting very close to a 100% success ratio.
I would not hesitate to recommend AER International to any mining project looking for a reliable and totally professional recruitment partner.
